HELPFUL MARKING TIPS SERIES: Electro-Chemical Etching of Titanium

Electro-Chemical Etching of Titanium

“When chemically etching information on Titanium, less is often more…”

For the best Electro-Chemical Etch results on Titanium, use Millennium Signatures Electrolyte Formulation
X4R-416 at a Medium to High Power Setting in the DC Output Mode on most Power Units. A good Deep Etch Power Unit is ideal for optimal results. Getting a high contrast light surface mark on Titanium can be challenging, if your specs will accommodate, it’s actually easier to get a very sharp crisp marking by etching down a couple thousandths of an inch (0.002”) or 0.051mm which is easily achieved with a few very quick, light applications of the hand marker as not to generate too much heat. 
Give the surface a very quick light scuff with a Scotch Brito abrasive type pad and you should have a beautiful, razor sharp, high contrast etch which is often easily mistaken for a laser quality marking.

Remember:
Remember to keep your Monopad very damp with the X4R-416 Electrolyte Formulation, but not dripping all over your part and workstation. Too much heat can be the enemy when marking most metals, this is especially true when marking Titanium.
Use Standard Neutralizer or our Extra Strength X4R-900 Neutralizer to thoroughly clean the areas that came in contact with the electrolyte. 
Results may vary slightly when using different grades of Titanium, but these tips typically serve well on all Titanium Etching Applications. A good ground connection in close proximity to the area you’re marking is always important.

NEW Galvo Driven Laser Marking System!


New Galvo Driven Laser Marking System for 2018

Do you have a Class I Galvo Driven Laser Marking System and an operator who stands idle in front of the machine for anywhere from 30 seconds per part to potentially a few minutes for every batch of parts loaded into the Laser Marker? If you have high volumes of product to Laser Mark, this time spent idle can greatly increase the overall time needed to process the parts you need. 
Consider the freshly redesigned Galvo Driven (Class I) Rotary Dial Index Laser Marking System for 2018 by TYKMA Electrox supplied by Millennium Signatures Marking Systems Inc.
This system is designed for additional efficiency over conventional Box Marking Enclosures with Manual or Automatic Door Systems.
These systems have a robust rotary table that is set-up to rotate 180 Degrees upon command at the end of each “marking cycle”. This allows an operator to be unloading parts that have just been marked and reload the fixture with fresh new parts at the very same time as the parts previously fixtured on the other half of the table are actively being marked. Once the cycle is complete and fresh (unmarked) product has been loaded there is a touch activation process that requires both hands to rotate the new parts in for processing at the same time as finished parts are presented back to the operator for unloading.
It’s a safe process, the Laser System is designed to provide Class I protection with a KG-3 Protective Viewing Window and integrates light curtains that will instantly stop the system in its tracks should the light curtain be interrupted or obstructed why the table is rotating.
It’s a much faster, more efficient process for applications that have high volumes of the same parts to be marked.
For more information on this system and various other system designs, contact our Technical Sales Team at Tel: (905) 639-0909 or by e-mail at info@millenniumsignatures.com.

Nothing Beats Experience!

Sometimes having the right equipment alone is not always a complete solution, especially when it comes to manufacturing Custom Parts. Nothing replaces experience. At Millennium Signatures Marking Systems, we sell Marking Equipment to help you, the manufacturer, properly and cost-effectively mark your parts. The equipment is very good quality and we are proud of the specific range of products that we bring to the marketplace going back as far as 1972. However, for some smaller businesses the cost of the equipment and the volume of parts they require the Marking process for make justification difficult.If you find yourself in a similar situation and you don’t have the time or the personnel to work through the learning curve of New equipment, talk to us about our Custom Part Marking Services.
Our highly experienced team has years and years of experience working with custom components of all shapes, sizes, materials and coatings and the processing such parts with every technology we sell, service and support. Do you manufacture a good product? Make sure you add the finishing touch to your product by making sure the branding and/ or traceability is clean, clear and professional looking.
